I got

54,279.75s 323.57
46,627.69s 604.88
46,611.45s 1,126.51

SixTrack v451.07 (pni)

As far I known, the point system awards something else (results?) more then CPU time. Although this example is a little bit extreme. Never had significantly more than 500 points for a WU, so at least the last one came as a surprise.
But I stopped to care, as it comes with the project. If you want to run for points, there are projects paying ten times more.

Right; this is all discussed in another thread. EXIT_TIME_LIMIT_EXCEEDED. am about to issue a news. In the present dire straits I have to push credit problems down the priority
list. Sorry about that but i will see if we can compensate. Eric.

Hi Eric, the ~300 points for 55ks is what you are usually pay, so I am fine. ;)
